NOLA*

For those of you uninitiated

this stands for New Orleans Louisiana

 

I am a confirmed small town

country girl

But …

there is one city that speaks

to me deep in  my soul

NOLA

 

Should I be told to give

up my rural country life

for a city NOLA would be my choice

the food…

the music…

the court yards…

the Big Easy life…

 

I spent some time there in

the mid 90s but not nearly enough

Only enough to know that I was

drawn to the old world charm

and combination of beauty from

multiple ethnic groups

Only enough time to know I

must go back and experience

the city on my own terms

in my own way and time

Farm House Rules

My grandmother lived in an old
farm-house on a black dirt East
Texas farm when I was a
very young child
 
Just her with my two uncles
My grandfather long dead
before I was born
 
Spartan…
No paint…
Wide front porch
Bathroom with a 
claw foot tub and sink
But…
Other business took
place outside
 
A square refrigerator
wearing a coil bonnet
the kitchen lighted by
a single bulb hanging
in the middle of 
the room
 
Country living…
Daylight to dark
Farm House Rules
Sweet Childhood…

Summer Time

Splashes of blue
and purple on
a field of white
 
My favorite colors
repeated over and
over again on my
eyelet sundress
 
The one you love
for me to wear
The one that
holds memories
 
It makes me
smile to see the 
light in your eyes
 
Knowing what
is planned later
A country drive
in your convertible
to worship nature
and each other
